Dan Zak, Washington Post reporter and author of "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age" will speak about a trio of peace activists who infiltrated the "Fort Knox of Uranium" in 2012 to protest the existence of nuclear weapons. Their arrest, trial, imprisonment, and release is a moral thriller. They drew attention to the costly military-industrial complex that stockpiles deadly nukes. Zak asks, "What if they had been terrorists?" Why do the U.S. and Russia still have enough nuclear weaponry to destroy planet earth many times over?" So, how can we counter the greatest, immediate modern-day threat to humanity and the planet? email@example.com

As the number of students attending Detroit Public Schools (DPS) has declined, so has funding for school operations, causing DPS to face huge financial challenges. Many public charter schools are also struggling. As DPS begins to transition back to local control, serious issues will be addressed such as academic achievement; financial stability; corruption; the condition of school buildings; and finding and supporting the best teachers. Most of the solutions to these challenges will come from citizens of Detroit, through local control. Irvin D. Reid and Sheila Cockrell, co-founders of CitizenDetroit, were guests on The Frank Beckmann Show discussing upcoming CitizenDetroit community events. CitizenDetroit is made possible through Wayne State University and the The Eugene & Marcia Applebaum Family Foundation and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Public education in Detroit - both traditional and charter - is in crisis. Scheduled CitizenDetroit events take place from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at The Cathedral Church of St. Paul Barth Hall, 4800 Woodward Avenue. Future dates include: May 19, 26; June 9, 16.
